Played Skyrim last night for about 5 hours - only level 26 and it says I have only done 8 core missions in 60 hours. haahahahah I have a lot of fun clearing out stuff, selling, crafting, talking with peeps, exploring....hell, I dont' even need a main storyline! hahahah
Generally thats the way I play games like that too. Thats how ppl like us get hundreds of hours in those kinda games

I have almost 300 hours put in Skyrim. It's maddening. Somehow I'm also booking progress in real life, otherwise I would've loathed myself for sure.

Games like Skyrim have an interesting attention curve for me, though. Once I finish the main quest.. I'm left with an empty feeling and lack of ambition. Suddenly exploring for the sake of exploring and fun has given way to a sense of a great lack of purpose. Just like that the veil just drops.. and I see the uselessness of it all.
Restarting fresh with a new character, however, gently puts that veil back on. It's so silly.
